This section covers the major market trends shaping the North American Feed Testing Market according to our research experts:

Increasing Government Regulations Driving Growth of Pet Food Testing Market

The presence of regulatory authorities such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is the major factor for big markets like North America for feed testing. The United States and Canada being developed countries, place emphasis on quality food for Humans consumption. The large agriculture and livestock market makes a case for the feed testing market in the region. According to the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) set forth by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), companies are asked to conduct pathogen detection and identification in pet food products, in order to ensure safety. The pet food evaluation considers dry dog food, refrigerated dog food, frozen dog and cat foods, dry cat food, pet treats, such as jerky, and bird feeds. The evaluated pet food comprises ingredients, such as chicken, turkey, salmon, fats, and/or grains, coupled with vitamins, supplements, and preservatives. The GeneDisc® System method (developed by Pall Corporation) has been granted AOAC PTM certification for the detection of Salmonella spp. and pathogenic E. coli O157 in dry dog food and is also applicable to other pet food products. Manufacturers have been employing molecular diagnostics as part of pathogen control programs, in order to obtain quick and accurate results. However, the method is an expensive procedure for small processors.

United States is Dominating the Market

North America holds the largest share in the feed testing market. The key factor driving the growth of the feed testing market in the region is the stringent regulatory environment, coupled with large-scale feed production. The significant share possessed by the region can be attributed to the increase in outbreaks of feed-borne illnesses, the existence of a large number of feed safety testing players, and stringent regulations relating to food safety, in the region. The United States is one of the largest producers of GM soy and corn, which supports the GMO testing market. The regulatory bodies in the region encourage testing practices during every stage of food production and processing. The food manufacturers are seeking holistic oversight over the entire value chain, imposing robust food safety policies. Canada follows the United States in the feed testing market share. It is the second-largest market for feed testing. In tandem with the United States market, the Canadian food market is also developed and aware of food safety. This agricultural scenario of the country provides a sizeable market for feed testing. Hence all these factors put together to contribute towards the increased demand for the feed testing market in the region.
